additional speakers, jim lazarus, kim jacobs and gordon mar, ms. hail? >> i'm vera hail and today i'm here just as a restaurant goer and i'm one that objects to the as -- surcharge and glad to see that was part of the recommendations, when i buy something at macy's or amazon, i do not have to pay for their employee's health care. whenever i eat out, i only eat at mid priced or lower restaurants, so not everywhere do i eat is covered by this, but i've noticed that the places that i do are adamant about it and i talked to the server to find out what the problems are and most of them do not have it and don't know when it starts when i talked to them. there was only one place that offered to remove my surcharge and when i complained about it and wherever i go, if it's on the bill, i complain, but nowhere else except this one place has offered to remove the fee. i think that all of these restaurants are doing okay by the number of people i see on them, they're not on the verge of closing, and i don't think that health reimbursement plan is a good idea. as a former director of an agency tha

direction. thank you for your support. >> good afternoon supervisors. i am jim lavick and a small flooring contractor. we do 90% of the business for small and medium size builders. when this legislation was passed back in 2006 probably 35 to 40% of our business was under ten unit buildings and along with what is going on in the economy since then -- i mean you can imagine what it's like to do business in the city but elsewhere and 90% of our business is done in the city. supervisor kim said that legislation like this passes and it helps the small business in the city. we used to employ 48 people, 49 people back in 2004. we're now 12 so whatever you people can do to try to boost our business it would be graciously appreciated. thank you very much for your support. >> good afternoon chairman mar, supervisors, and steven mc clory. i am here today to congratulate everyone on getting behind the new rules for the five to nine unit projects. i spoke with a few people today that work on our jobs and asked them when is the last time they were on one of those projects? and literally no one

jim and others who have been a part of the conversation for decades. >> well thank you. thank you colleagues. thank you commissioners and of course thank you to also to the clerk's office who has always done a great job of supporting and staffing lafco, so with they will turn it over to ms. miller and one of the big questions that i had in terms of moving this forward is how do we make sure that this synergy between lafco and the san francisco public utilities commission continues to make sure that we hit the ground running as we're moving to the next stage of the process, and one of the ideas i had and was the idea of making sure that we have a follow up joint meeting of the two bodies, so that we can have an in-depth discussion about next steps and making sure that we're crossing all the t's and doting the i's. >> and i want to say on behalf of staff it's an incredible vote last week. i know you have been following the press. it's nationwide press on the program and we are going to be honoring mike and honoring ed last week and i want to say a special thank you to barbara hale a

. >> hi. my name is jim foley. ñ i work for don kitchen and bath and sell supplies and decorative plumbing and these are some of my clients here so when they build they don't just benefit but the supply house benefits, the manufacturer benefits, xqt sales people benefit, the truck drivers benefit and they really do spread it around and i have been in business for 15 years. we are a smallish company so our target market we're in this five to nine market range. it was a good day when i sold a project with seven, zÑeight, nine units on it and now they have gone away and most of my product goes to remodels or single homes and made it tough and i want to thank you for this contribution and when these men build they're spreading the wealth around to san francisco. thank you. >> good afternoon. i am david sternberg and we have been doing work in san francisco really since 1980 and we do a lot of these size projects and i will state for the record in the last -- since this thing passed in 2006 we had two six unit projects and no other projects in this category. both are not built. one o

-- he doesn't say what the top range is. there's a guy named jim reid who is a contractor here he built himself in his own back yard a single unit house that he built for $12,000, very small, designed for one person, getting somebody off the street, like 10 foot by 10 foot but it had plumbing, electricity, storage, everything someone would need to live a simple existence. 12,000, how much is it going to cost to build these, half a million dollars? they are not really affordable. they're not going to help those most in need of housing as we can see by the continued presence of the homeless on the streets of san francisco. this is a measure designed to capture revenue like the redevelopment agency did. >> thank you both very much for sharing your thoughts and insights. we hope this discussion was informative. for more information on this and other ballot measures in this year's election, please visit the san francisco league of women voters web site at sfvotes.org and remember early voting is available at city hall monday through friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm if you don't vote earl
